Excellent for home user who doesn't need computerized, digital, or touch screen coffee machine.
At this stage I am giving 5 stars for many things that this machine has to offer, only one thing that concerns me is the reliability of this machine as I only owned this one for only over 2 weeks ( i heard some previous style Gaggia classic last up to 13 years).
I have used 2 other brand median price coffee machine since 6 years ago the infuser last for 4 years until it started leak and power button played up and other Barista max only last for 10 months after 2 other replacement, I hope with Gaggia Classic NEW or PRO will outlast those machi...ne that I previously owned so my investment will be paid off. me and my wife make 3-4 cups of coffee everyday in total Coffee extracted quality and dosing: Coffee extraction result is excellent if you get the right grinder setting and amount of ground coffee in porta filter, I wasted 500gr coffee beans to get the perfect ground by trial and error. to me 1 shot porta filter (come with it) is to weak coffee result, double shot is to much so I used old porta filter from old machine that can hold 12gr ground coffee and the result is what i like, just perfect. if you don't mind about auto dosing for single or double shoot, this machine is the way to go as I said its not computerised machine, you will get used to about coffee dosing to your preference taste. note: you need SEPARATE grinder if you like freshly ground coffee every time or buy pre-ground coffee and may not have good coffee extraction and may not compatible with this machine, every coffee has different characteristic like how fine(ground) will it be for specific machine. The look and size: not too big, nice and neat sit perfectly on the kitchen bench ( mine is stainless steel version).
Purchased in February 2021 at Ronita.com.au.
I cannot recommend enough.
This is a BRILLIANT machine.
Love everything about it.
With a good grinder the coffee has a perfect crema. Also the wand is great which makes perfect cappuccini and latte with perfect foam. Made in Italy and very simple design with not much electronic as it is built to last. Doesn't take much to be ready for brewing.
Small, and compact, great design.
The stainless steel finish is just great.
Purchased in September 2020 at Appliances Online for $630.00.
Gaggia finally nails the brief, from good to great, though a bit late.
Before I begin, I should state that this is my second Gaggia, I previously owned a Gaggia Coffee (discontinued) that lasted for 14 years. Though very similar to the classic, this new machine is better in almost every way.
Domestically Gaggia had kind of fallen of the map over the past decade after stagnating and trying to cut corners (at least according to reports/forums).
When my machine finally died a month ago I was going to buy a Breville like most of my office colleagues.
But then saw a report that there was a “new” classic machine w...hich is made in Italy once again with some design improvements to boot. So bought one since longevity is important to me. This new classic much quieter than my previous model. It has a selanoid valve which the Gaggia Coffee did not and makes clean up easier. Have yet to burn the coffee.
Purchased in September 2019 for $850.00.
